I know Spring Break isn’t even here yet, but, it’s not too early to think about what you’re going to be doing with your kids this Summer. Instead of the same old day care programs, why not send your kids on an adventure?!
Busch Gardens Tampa offers Adventure Day camps for K-12, with many different programs, as well as sleep over camps. And, you can claim it as dependent care on your taxes.

I was in Clearwater Beach today for lunch at the new Hooters, which is located at the round-about, above an equally new Ron Jon Surf Shop. After lunch, we took a walk across the street to check out the dolphin art. The dolphins line the perimeter of the park at Pier 60. Each one was created by a different artist and was sponsored by a local business or organization. They were all really cool. If you get a chance, head over there, but do it before September 4th. After that, they’re gone.
After a long day at work, you want to kick back and relax. How about taking a sunset cruise?! This 2 hour cruise leaves out of Clearwater 7 days a week. Take advantage of this deal on Eversave, and you could be spending date night on the Gulf for only $22 per couple.
Hurry this deal won’t be around for long. $22 sunset Cruise for 2
Hubby and I have been so busy. We’ve been exploring the Tampa Bay area like never before. We’ve got new restaurants and stores to share, events, and some great giveaways.
I’ve really been having a lot of fun in the Florida sun! I really just need to find some time to get caught up on everything. In the meantime, here’s a few pics from our latest trip to Ft. Desoto Beach, which is very quickly becoming one of our favorite places around Tampa Bay. Have a great day!
This looks like a ghastly good time! If you’re looking for a little history mixed with spooky love stories, this Ybor City Ghost Walk may be a great deal. For the next couple days, you can get the tour for half off with this Groupon Deal. I know I’ll be buying mine.
Ybor City Ghost Tour only $15
I joined my fellow pirates and took to the streets of Tampa for a fun day at Gasparilla. This year was different for my Krewe because we were so close to the front of the parade (#9.) This meant a lot less time for pre-parade partying, but we still made the best of it.
The crowds were crazy, but everyone seemed to be having a good time. Except for the occasional bead thrown back at me, (by the way, so not cool, if you don’t like it, give it away don’t throw it back at the pirates…seriously, it hurts!) Continue reading
I’ve been to Channelside on multiple occasions; to watch a movie, have dinner, go bowling, stuff my face with chocolate, etc…
In all my visits there, I’ve never noticed that the bowling pin outside of Splitsville is actually an American original. That’s right, Tampa is home to the world’s largest bowling pin! The world’s largest bowling pin towers 30 feet above the Channelside Courtyard at the entrance to Splitsville.
I knew Tampa was home to the world’s longest sidewalk (Bayshore Blvd), but who knew we had this great piece of Americana right under our nose?! Ladies and Gentlemen, you can mark this one, off my bucket list!
Worlds Largest Bowling Pin
My New Years Eve was spent at the improved and newly named Tampa Bay Times Forum. It was a great night with friends watching Lightning Hockey. The forum has been remodeled, and what a great job they did! There are more open spaces to watch the game (or concert) while grabbing a bite to eat. The seats now have drink holders, and there is a real organ for that authentic hockey game feeling.

It’s almost time to start thinking about Crazy rides and what you want deep-fried. The Florida State Fair will be hitting Tampa from February 9 – 20, 2012. It will bring all the usual fun, rides, entertainment, and of course…food.
To make everything run smoothly, quality seasonal employees are needed for everything from ticket takers, to ushers, to trolley drivers. If you need a little extra cash, this may be the job for you. Just don’t spend it all on deep-fried Snickers, or, heck, go ahead, you earned it! Continue reading
Saturday, September 24, 2011 is Museum Day. In honor of this day, many museums around Tampa Bay, and across the country will be offering free admission. If you don’t have any plans for Saturday, this could be a great way to spend the day. You won’t be able to hop from museum to museum because it is limited to a pair of tickets for one museum per household, but, hey, it’s free, so stop your complaining!
Some of the museums participating include:
Tampa Bay History Center
Tampa Museum of Art
The Pier Aquarium, and many, many, more…
To get your pair of free tickets, head over to SmithsonianMag.com, fill out your information and select the Museum of your choice. The tickets will be e-mailed to you and you can be on your way to expanding your horizons and exploring new Tampa places. Enjoy the day!
